In recent years, America’s position of leadership in the world has been challenged in many ways. One significant shift is that the country’s position as the preeminent global leader in higher education, particularly in the fields of science and technology, has come into question. American Universities in a Global Market addresses the variety of issues crucial to understanding this change. The volume examines the various factors that contributed to America’s success in higher education, including openness to people and ideas, generous governmental support, and a tradition of decentralized friendly competition.
